about this product

Item #: M6-154-BAI


Order Details


The Morseth® knives continue to be handmade in our shop using all possible modern techniques, such as outside water jet to cut the blades instead of band sawing, CNC grinders to rough grind the blades, and EDM to precisely fit the guards instead of hand filing - cutting belt costs and our knifemaker's time. These cost savings help keep the retail prices reasonable.

The Hunter's Bowie (Model 6) has been one of the most popular Morseth® models since A. G. Russell™ Knives has owned the trademark. In the early 1970s, shortly after I purchased Morseth Knives from Harry's Morseth's son Gordon, Bob Dozier and I re-designed Harry's 6" hunter. We made the blade wider and Bob redesigned the handle to include the fingergrooves. This is really a multi-purpose knife, great as a general camp knife; good for butchering your game, slicing bacon or splitting kindling for a fire. Also makes a very usable fighter.

Today the blade steel is Crucible's 154CM stainless at 59-61 Rc. Otherwise, the knives are made as they have always been, with a narrow tang allowing for a large variation in handle materials with very strong structural integrity. Blocks of each material chosen for the handle are drilled and broached to fit and then slipped over the narrow extension of the blade (the tang). The space between the tang and the handle material is then filled with epoxy and a tang nut is screwed onto the end of the tang and tightened, creating a solid handle. In this case the handle is Blonde African Ironwood throat separated from the handle with a thin strip of black fiber, brass and ivory rucarta.  The guard is 420 stainless steel. Each knife includes a handmade sheath. Sheath and knife are both made in the U.S.A.

The Morseth® trademark is owned by A. G. Russell™ Knives, Inc.
